US President-elect Donald Trump has praised Russian president Vladimir Putin after he ruled out a tit-for-tat response to the expulsion of diplomats in a row over hacking.

Trump tweeted that it was a great move on delay by Putin, and that he always knew Putin was very smart!

Putin had earlier said Russia would not stoop to "irresponsible diplomacy".

Washington expelled 35 diplomats over hacking related to the US election.

Moscow denies any involvement.

Trump has previously dismissed the hacking claims as "ridiculous" and said that Americans should get on with their lives" when asked about the possibility of sanctions.
